Biden Kicks Off Campaign By Spreading an Easily Debunked Lie

Well, it’s official. Joe Biden has announced his campaign for the presidency in 2020 with an official launch video discussing ‘core values,” ending months – if not years – of speculation.

What makes this announcement peculiar is that Biden opted to start with a media-concocted hoax. A confident candidate wouldn’t have to stoop to such measures, but here is the former vice president within seconds of his campaign video beginning, promoting the Charlottesville hoax. A hoax that portrays President Trump as a racist for supposedly siding with neo-Nazis who attended a rally in 2017 which led to the death of Heather Heyer.

Biden lambasted Trump for saying at the time that “there were some very fine people on both sides.”

“With those words, the president of the United assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” he added.

The media has been driving this scandal ever since the President uttered the words “fine people.”

But those words were taken out of context, and Trump’s alleged support of white nationalists is simply a lie. Biden chose to begin his entry into the Democrat primary with that lie. It’s time to debunk this thing once and for all.

‘Fine People’ Taken Out of Context

The President’s comments were undoubtedly taken out of context. During the same line of questioning at a press conference three days after the tragic event, he unequivocally drew a line between the white supremacists and the “fine people” on both sides of a Confederate statue debate at the competing rallies.

First, the comment that has drawn the most attention from the media: Trump said, “You had some very bad people in that group … But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”

This, the liberal media, and now apparently Biden as well, contends is evidence that Trump was equating the neo-Nazis to ‘fine people.’

In that same press conference, within seconds of making that statement, Trump said this (pay particularly close attention to the bottom part of the transcript:

 

Additionally, Trump went on to say that the press coverage of the rally focusing on some peaceful rallygoers was unfair, and he again drew a distinction between those people and the white nationalists.

“You were saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly?” a reporter asked.

“No, no,” Trump responded. “There were people in that rally … protesting very quietly … I’m sure in that group there were some bad ones.”

“The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people, neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call ‘em.”

To summarize, Trump said:

  • Bad people, not fine people.
  • The neo-Nazis and white nationalists “should be condemned totally.”

The line between who was good and who was bad at that rally was very clearly defined by President Trump. It was only the ‘fine people’ comment anyone in the media cared about. If you don’t believe the transcript, here’s the video evidence that Biden is ignoring:

 

Always Denounces White Supremacists

The Charlottesville hoax is similar to the one involving David Duke and Trump’s alleged refusal to denounce the KKK leader.

Duke himself jumped on the Charlottesville hoax and praised Trump’s ‘fine people’ statement without noting the rest of his words. It was an aspect the lying media enjoyed, as they had spent much of Trump’s campaign pretending he never denounced Duke’s support in the past.

Trump in 2000 actually left the reform party over David Duke’s inclusion, denouncing him as “a bigot, a racist.”

 

And in case you, the media, or Joe Biden can’t recall, Donald Trump has disavowed Duke explicitly since then, spanning nearly two decades.

 

Scott Adams, the famed Dilbert cartoonist, writes about both myths.

 

“Trump has publicly disavowed white supremacists numerous times, both before and after running for president,” Adams writes. “In the context of Charlottesville, the ‘fine people’ he was referring to were non-racists who prefer keeping confederate statues for historical/cultural reasons.”

Whether it’s Charlottesville, or David Duke, or any other instance involving race, ‘facts don’t matter‘ to the Democrat party or the media.

And now Joe Biden, the man leading nearly every major poll and the presumptive challenger to President Trump is more than willing to live by that mantra.
